Rainy Sunday: Zombies & Panera

It’s a raaainy day – it’s rainin’ outside and I can’t go out to play… why do we need the rain anywaaay?

Any Sesame Street fans in the house? :) I just always think of this song on dreary, grey, watery days like this one. Of course, in true Sesame Street style, the song goes on to explain that every living thing needs water, and therefore rain is actually pretty necessary. True that.

Today I decided to escape the rain by hitting up the movie theater. I haven’t seen a *new* movie since the latest Harry Potter installment this summer, so I figured it was high time to change that. A friend and I saw Zombieland, which was both pretty hilarious and rather gory. Luckily I have a rather high gore tolerance level, but if you don’t, I’d use a little bit of caution. Other than that, though, I thought it was quite fun. I may be biased, though, since I do have a thing for zombies… Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite movies. Anyway, Zombieland has likeable characters and amusing situations, and it’s doubly cool because Woody Harrelson is a vegan! It’s awesome to see vegan actors play majorly awesome ass-kicking characters, even if said characters are Twinkie addicts. Heh.

After our movie experience, my friend and I headed across the street for a late lunch/early dinner at Panera. I’m a big Panera fan for on-the-go eating; I used to love their broccoli cheddar soup in a breadbowl, but obviously that’s out of the question these days. Today I had the black bean soup, although the Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich (minus the feta) is another vegan option. Being vegan is easy AND yummy, even on the go! :)

In conclusion, zombies + Panera = the perfect way to mitigate the depressingness of a rainy Sunday.

On the topic of vegans & zombies, feel free to get me this shirt for Christmas; I wear an x-small. Thanks in advance. :P
